With about eight minutes remaining in the second quarter against the Giants, Jefferson had caught four passes for 50 yards, bringing his season total to 115 catches for 1,673 yards.

The 2022 season is Jefferson’s third year in the NFL. In his 2020 rookie season, he caught 88 passes for 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 games. In 2021, he caught 108 passes for 1,616 yards and 10 points in 17 games.

Jefferson is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL. If he continues to build on what he has done so far, he has the potential to become one of the greats.
